    Do unix commands work on iPhone terminal. I am building an app that runs commands and I am look for some and I was wondering if the iPhone executes unix based commands or not (since the iPhone is unix with a gui).

    Correct me if im wrong but yes it uses unix commands but its not all the same, for example dpkg works on it. It has specific commands that work and also some things you need to download from cydia.

    I dont really use terminal for more than simple commands so i dont understand alot but i use linux and i see the similarities.
